Warcraft Arclight Rumble from Blizzard Entertainment? Who really wants another Clash Royale-like game from a WOKE company? Yuck! And the name is stupid.

Statement by Meow

Many people in the Hackintosh communities don’t want to admit that the END of Hackintosh is coming soon and still encourage newcomers to build a new one. To other people who suggest waiting or considering more, their opinions are usually given a 👎 or even removed. Remember, it’s highly possible that AMD RX 7000 series won’t be supported by macOS, or macOS 13 and later won’t support Intel CPUs. Hackintosh is DYING!

Internet upgraded to 500M/50M

Since 30 April 2022, Meow’s internet speed is upgraded to 500M (downloading) / 50M (uploading), provided by TWM Broadband (台灣大寬頻). It was 60M/20M.

The following summary is generated by the command networkQuality -v which is introduced in macOS Monterey.

Upload capacity: 40.399 Mbps
Download capacity: 452.926 Mbps
Upload flows: 12
Download flows: 12
Responsiveness: High (1967 RPM)
Base RTT: 14
Start: 2022/4/30 16:34:52
End: 2022/4/30 16:35:02
OS Version: Version 12.3.1 (Build 21E258)

The result indicates a speed slightly slower than what speed testing websites suggested, but seems more realistic.

Statement by Meow

I announced that the ultimate deadline for a revision from the Chinese artist HYH Lion is officially 31 July 2022. I have been extremely generous that the previous revision was released back to October 2019, but it should not be tolerated anymore. Draw or refund!

My friend (still one in the future?) replied to me so little and recently said a marriage is coming in a few months. I t’s shocking as the problem of romances aren’t caused by people… It’s actually ME! I still have to contact that person because of OWING the artwork revisions for me!

MacBook4,1 with Source Han Sans

Recently Meow bought a used MacBook4,1 at a decent price, but the battery and display panel were broken. Meow disassembled a broken MacBook1,1 and reassembled the parts to that MacBook4,1, taking 7 hours.

Update about Hubei artist

Meow successfully contacted HYH Lion on 28 June 2021, and figured out the reason of his absence for over one year due to personal issues (confidential). After an apology to him, the commissioned artwork has been resumed and will be finished later this year.

Alternative usage of DEPTHY

Many reviews on the internet have introduced DEPTHY, a three-dimension viewer by applying a greyscale depth map— the brighter the farther, the darker the closer. You can use DEPTHY to create an animated GIF so the objects can repeatedly move horizontally, vertically or circularly. Meow is not going to show how to use it, but how to use it alternatively.
